the Beatles [In reply to] Can't Post

I had a $100 gift certificate to the iTunes store, so I bought the Beatles box set that I've been meaning to get for awhile now.

Listened to most of the albums now. It's been a long time for some of them, and some songs I'm pretty sure I've never heard before. I got into the Beatles through my dad's record collection, which of course had the American versions of the Beatles' albums. So, e.g., while I always liked Rubber Soul, in my mind it's the American version -- with "I've Just Seen a Face" (which was 'really' from Help), but not "If I Needed Someone". In the US, the latter appeared on the album Yesterday and Today which my dad didn't have and I've never heard, so a song like "If I Needed Someone" is new to me. So, it's kind of cool to discover new Beatles music. Cool

Highest point of the Beatles' career in my opinion: the Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane single. What an amazing pair of songs. The piccolo trumpet in Penny Lane is one of the greatest things in music ever.

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams
